The MIMEARGS resource may be used to pass optional
arguments to MIME filters to control their behavior. Arguments may
be defined on a per content-type basis, or for a specific filter

The syntax for each line of the the
element is as follows:
The format of argument strings is dependent on the filter that processes content-type or by the specified filter, filter-name.
If an argument string is defined for a filter explicitly and for a content-type that the filter processes, the content-type string will override the filter string.
For backwards compatibility, the values of a MIMEARGS specification can be separated with a colon, ":". However, if you use a colon, package qualification of a function must use Perl 4 syntax.
<MIMEArgs> image/gif; inline image/jpeg; inline image/x-xbitmap; inline image/x-xbm; inline </MIMEArgs>
The following tells the text/plain filter to italicize quoted text in a followup.
